North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, the Republican nominee for governor, recently delivered a straight-talking campaign speech at The Lake Church in North Carolina, where he didn’t hold back in his expressions. Reflecting a no-nonsense attitude, Robinson asserted, “Some folks need killing,” and unapologetically referenced historical instances where the U.S. confronted evil head-on.

In his speech, Robinson pointed to the country’s past approach to dealing with evil on the battlefield, emphasizing that “we killed it” without hesitation. Drawing on historical events, he cited the decisive action taken by the U.S. in response to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the Nazi threat during World War II, where evil was unequivocally dealt with.

Defending his statements, Robinson addressed potential criticism from liberals, stating, “Some folks need killing. It’s time for somebody to say it.” Brushing off the potential backlash, he unapologetically declared, “Too bad,” challenging those who might find his words insensitive.

 

Robinson emphasized the necessity of taking action against wicked individuals engaging in heinous acts such as torture, murder, and rape, stressing the importance of law enforcement in confronting such atrocities head-on. Calling for a return to a no-nonsense approach, he urged for swift and efficient handling of such matters by law enforcement.

 

In response to inquiries about his comments, Robinson’s campaign spokesperson, Michael Lonergan, emphasized that the remarks about evil were specifically directed at historical references and didn’t directly address the governor nominee’s broader call to “start handling our business again.”

 

The pastor of The Lake Church, Rev. Cameron McGill, stood by Robinson’s statements, explaining that the comments were focused on those “seeking to kill us” and clarified that Robinson did not imply harm to innocent individuals. McGill underlined that the bulk of Robinson’s speech was non-controversial, portraying the gubernatorial candidate’s stance as unwavering and resolute.
